First Lines of "Gods Without Men"

"In the time when the animals were men, Coyote was living in a certain place. "Haikya! I have gotten so tired of living here-aikya. I am going to go out into the desert and cook." With this, Coyote took an RV and drove into the desert to set up a lab."

- Hari Kunzru, Gods Without Men. An extremely entertaining book so far. An episodic book, but one that on page 71 doesn't really show signs of meaningful connection. I'm curious to see if the author is looking to blend things together David Mitchell-style or is just building a collage of sorts. Either way, its fantastic reading. h/t to Eric and Joel for pointing me at this one.
